MONROE, CT — A 48-year-old Shelton woman was hospitalized with injuries after being involved in a one-vehicle rollover crash on a steep embankment on East Village Road, close to the Shelton border, late Friday night. Firefighters had to extricate her from her vehicle.
On Saturday morning, Police Chief Keith White said officers are still investigating the accident, which occurred around 10:15 p.m.
On Wednesday, police said injuries were to the driver’s lower extremities and were not life threatening.
Monroe Fire Chief Kevin Catalano said the SUV was off the road, on its roof and into a tree with the driver pinned under the dashboard. She temporarily lost consciousness, but came to at the scene, he said.
“Firefighters worked with the Monroe Volunteer Emergency Medical Service and Police Department to remove the patient in just under 15 minutes of beginning extrication procedures,” he said.
Approximately 25 firefighters responded to the call, according to Catalano.
